        • Another ****** draft if you're a Magic fan. We keep trading all of our picks...or worse, drafting Daniel Orton.

          At least we hit on Courtney Lee...oh wait, we traded him too. :(

          Thanks BoneKrusher^

            What is the plan for Daniel Orton? I saw he was injured most of the season, but what do the Magic expect of him? As of now I can't see him being ready to be Howard's successor. Can the kid play? What would be a reasonable ETA on him being a servicable player?

              He hasn't signed with an agent, and once he's told he has no chance in the 1st, he'll come back to college.

              He was soft as charmin this year. He needs to think less about making money and more about his toughness and fundamentals.


              Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                The plan for Daniel Orton is just for him to continue to be a big bust. I would expect more out of Fran Vazquez at this point.

                  He's a mystery. He played injured in Summer League and put up one of the worst performances ever in the league. He was horrible. As you said, he was injured...had knee surgery and was shut down this season. I couldnt tell you what he is going to be. He hasnt even been able to work on his game. He should have stayed in school. A lot of people saw him as a potential Kendrick Perkins player, with better offensive potential. His value comes from being a solid defener, and he does have a good feel/touch around the basket. Orlando is certainly hoping he can come in healthy and be Dwight's backup for now. We dont even have a backup Center. But, I have a real hard time seeing him being ready to take over any time soon and any Howard deal, would net us a Center, more than likely. But for the short term...Orlando is just hoping he becomes a reliable backup for the time being.

                  With his injury history and a year of doing nothing. I couldnt even give you an ETA. haha. I just dont know, what he's going to be. I dont have that much faith in him as a player.

                    I wish we could sign Fran up. He's an absolute beast over seas. Could be a fine addition. He says he's ready to come over, but yeah he's played the Magic before. But at least all signs point to Orlando at least attempting to bring him over this season. Labor issues could really effect this pursuit, however.

                      That makes me wonder if we will see some of our fringe guys/league minimum guys go to Europe to play if there is a prolonged lockout.

                      • The thing is Daniel Orton got drafted purely because of his size. He's never had skills or athleticism. Best case scenario is Orton turns out into a Jason Collins type. Collins though is a great teammate, has a high IQ, and is an extremely hard worker, so just even reaching that point will be tough on Orton. I think he's out of the league real soon.

                        • Kawhi Leonard has signed with an agent, Terrence Jennings has declared, and Darius Morris has decided to keep his name in the draft.

                            Orton is only 20. Don't you think his youth and size will keep him on a roster for a few seasons? I think he is worth a gamble. If the Bulls weren't developing Asik, behind Noah, I wouldn't mind giving him a shot. He has to be more valuable on the Bulls roster than Rasul Butler, John Lucas, and Jannero Pargo are.

                              Lucas and Pargo have given Rose some rest during practices, which he really needs. With all the big men they have, I doubt he would get any playing time, other than in garbage time. Asik would definitely be playing harder in the little time he gets than Orton would be.
